Chocolate Consumption and Risk of Stroke in Women

To the Editor:

Ample evidence indicates that chocolate may have beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system. Chocolate consumption has been shown to reduce systolic and diastolic blood pressure in short-term randomized feeding trials (1), and has been demonstrated to improve endothelial and platelet function and to ameliorate insulin resistance (2). Moreover, flavonoids in chocolate possess strong antioxidant activity and can suppress oxidation of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (3).

If they told me it caused strokes, I'd probably still eat it.  ;)

You do realize that I already posted this exact same recipe last year, right?

Given the effort we put into forgetting these (when we make the error of reading them to begin with) are you surprised when we have duplicates?  Especially that far apart - the memory had time to die and the ghost to dissipate.

And I die for the truth in my secret life

Ugh. And then Mel had to necromance it up again. (... I just verbed "necromancy"? Really?) :stop:

Not surprised but I took great pride in finding that recipe as it is probably in the top ten grossest ever list.

Yes he did... and now I have to once again find the brain cell that recipe is imprinted on and exterminate, annihilate, and destroy it.
